Penetration testing attempts to gain access to your organization’s critical systems by exploiting discovered vulnerabilities. Proficio simulates an actual attack using tools to test and assess the effectiveness of existing security controls.
A penetration test is most often performed remotely following a vulnerability assessment, which is a statistical analysis conducted with automated and manual techniques that can identify available systems and their underlying services.
The goal of a penetration test is to validate and determine the true risk associated with identified vulnerabilities.
Penetration testing is a key component of HIPAA, PCI DSS and other industry compliance standards. If your company or organization is seeking to come into compliance with your industry’s regulatory agency, a penetration test likely is part of that certification process.
With penetration testing, you can find out what vulnerabilities lie in your current cybersecurity defenses by allowing the “good guys” to discover the weaknesses before the “bad guys” get a chance to.
